What is Family Law?
Family law is the practice of handling family relationships, matters, and disputes. It involves both the creation of new families, such as prenuptial agreements and adoptions, as well as the breaking down of existing relationships, such as divorce and separation.
Typically, family law covers all the following legal matters and disputes:
- Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
- Alimony and spousal support
- Child support and custody
- Divorce and separation
- Common-law relationships
By nature, family law matters are often emotional and delicate. It’s often helpful to approach these matters with a mindset towards cooperation, rather than confrontation. The goal is generally not to have a winner and loser, but to focus on resolving the most pressing current matters, while simultaneously looking to create a better future for all involved. The well-being of children, especially, should always be top-of-mind. This attitude of collaboration can help to ease tensions and facilitate negotiations that will allow everyone to move forward.
